Celebrities are always in the eye of the public from pointing out a new tattoo to watching their lives unfold on television. The current generation is infatuated with celebrity couples and fawn over who is dating who. The current couple that has all eyes on them is Selena Gomez, former actress turned singer, and Abel Tasfaye, a singer known as The Weeknd.
“I honestly really think that even though it is a shock, I [believe] that they are a really good couple. I feel like [Selena and Abel] are a good couple. They are both different people, but I think that’s a good thing because they can learn from each other,” says senior Lyla Warsi.
Many celebrities date each other for publicity to get their name out in the public before releasing an album.
“I [do not think this is a publicity stunt] because it was so out of the blue and no one saw it coming. I think his relationship with Bella was a publicity stunt due to his release of Starboy and her debut in the Victoria Secret Fashion Show,” says senior Saijia Teamer-Land.
The reason no one saw anything coming was because of the sudden split of Abel and Bella Hadid, a model.
“I did not really root for Bella and Abel. In all of their photos they just seemed really awkward and unhappy together. So when they broke up, I wasn’t too sad about it,” says senior Kendall Phillips.
The nature of their relationship has many fans wondering if Abel and Selena will be staying together for a while.
“Even though I am all for Selena and Abel, I do not believe that they will last as a couple because I think it is a publicity stunt,” says senior Pooja Patel.
Selena recently returned to the public eye after staying in a rehab home. Selena has been suffering from depression, anxiety, and panic attacks.
“Selena has been through enough to know not to waste her time on any[one] irrelevant. It’s been awhile since Selena has been in a relationship since Zedd. She went through a rough patch and found someone that makes her happy and she is taking her time to make sure [she is dating] the right person,” says Warsi.
